How to Cook Recipes

★ How to Cook Recipes ★



Cook Food in A Cooking Pot

Legend of Zelda BOTW Cooking Pot

Cooking recipes using a cooking pot is the best way to cook food because of the buffs and health recovery it provides. The buff your dish is going to get depends on the ingredients you're going to use.

Cooking pots are commonly found in stables and villages, but they can't be used when it's raining.

Use Ingredients That Provide Buffs

Hyrule is home to different creatures and plants that can provide buffs when cooked. Try cooking these special ingredients with other basic ingredients to get useful buffs!

Effect Ingredients
Cold Resistance Spicy Pepper, Sunshroom, Warm Safflina, Sizzlefin Trout, Warm Darner, Summerwing Butterfly
Heat Resistance Hydromelon, Chillshroom, Cool Safflina, Chillfin Trout, Cold Darner, Winterwing Butterfly
Flame Resistance Smotherwing Butterfly, Fireproof Lizard
Electricity Resistance Volfruit, Voltfin Trout, Electric Safflina, Thunderwing Butterfly, Zapshroom
Attack Boost Mighty Bananas, Razorshroom, Mighty Thistle, Mighty Carp, Mighty Porgy, Razorclaw Crab, Bladed Rhino Beetle
Defense Boost Ironshroom, Fortified Pumpkin, Armoranth, Armored Carp, Armored Porgy, Ironshell Crab, Rugged Rhino Beetle
Movement-Speed Boost Fleet-Lotus Seeds, Rushroom, Swift Carrot, Swift Violet, Hightail Lizard, Hot-Footed Frog
Stealth Boost Silent Shroom, Blue Nightshade, Sneaky River Snail, Stealthfin Trout, Sunset Firefly
Stamina Recovery and Boost Bright-Eyed Crab, Endura Carrot, Endura Shroom, Energetic Rhino Beetle, Restless Cricket, Stamella Mushroom, Staminoka Bass, Tireless Frog

Intensify Buffs

Legend of Zelda BOTW Mighty Seafood Rice Balls

You can also increase the potency of the buffs in your dish by combining two different ingredients that provide the same buff.

However, you shouldn't combine two different ingredients that provide two different buffs because they will just cancel each other out. Leaving you with a dish with no buffs.

Extend Buffs

Legend of Zelda BOTW Mighty Fish Skewer

You can extend the duration of your buffs by cooking them with other special ingredients as well!

We recommend cooking your dishes with a Shard of Farosh's Horn to increase the duration of your buff to 30 minutes.

You can farm Shards of Farosh's Horns at Riola Spring in the Faron Region.

Where to Farm Shard of Farosh's Horns: Locations and Prices

Cook Food During a Blood Moon

Legend of Zelda BOTW Blood Moon Monsters

This method is just like cooking in a pot, except you do it during the night of the Blood Moon.

Cooking food in a pot from 11:30 PM to 12:00 AM during a Blood Moon can give your dish a random buff. The buff you'll get can either be an extra heart recovered, added potency to whatever buff already present in the dish, or an extended buff duration!

Don't limit yourself by cooking only during the night of the Blood Moon though. If you happen upon a cooking pot during that time, you can cook something up. Otherwise, you can cook dishes anytime of the day using special ingredients to give yourself a buff.

Cook Food With Fire

Legend of Zelda BOTW Campfire

You can also cook food by placing it near fire or by using a fire weapon. It won't provide the same effects as using a cooking pot, but it is still better than eating ingredients raw.

Cook Food by Freezing

Legend of Zelda BOTW Freezing Food

Finally, you can also cook meat and fish by freezing them!

You can do this by going to an icy region like the Hebra and Gerudo Highlands region, and dropping your food on the ground and waiting for it to freeze.

Alternatively, you can use an ice weapon on your desired ingredient to freeze it.
